Wednesday was a very tough day.
I was shocked and saddened by the news of the passing of my buddy, John Saunders. He was just 61 years old.
I loved my time working with John. He was such a special person, a family man who cared about others. He was always there to lend a hand to anyone in need. John meant so much to the V Foundation and worked so hard because of his pal, Jimmy Valvano.
John was kind enough to introduce me when I was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame. He also was the emcee at my Dickie V gala on numerous occasions and did a terrific job.
He will truly be missed. RIP my friend.
